Miltary Applications for TeslaMarch 18th, 2019
What military applications you ask? Let’s back up a bit.
Tesla has a feature promise of “Full Self Driving”. Their focus on solving this problem has been sensor input, data collection, and hardware optimisation.
As a Tesla vehicle drives down the road, it will need to make constant calculations to answer the question “will that hit me if I continue?”.
Now, assuming the following:
- software is open
- data storage location is modifiable
The specialised sensor input hardware and learning algorithms applied with cameras mounted on a soldier or war vehicle. If you make a robot that is highly nimble in that it can spring out of the way in any direction, you have a very formidable weapon on the ground.
So why is this a concern? Why indeed.
